We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
John Hay "Jock" Whitney is better known to racing fans like the Punter as the impresario of Greentree Stable, a racing powerhouse from the '30's through the '60's, Tom Fool being his most famous runner in the early '50's, Malicious a top handicap runner in the mid-60's. He had the grandest spread in Saratoga, just down Nelson Ave from the track, Jock Whitney was the ne plus ultra of the gentleman sportsman breed. The 77 footer looks pretty good, probably Jock's summer "commuter" conveyance from the office on Wall St to LI North Shore? Anyway, looks like a helluva lotta fun.
